I'm not really sure what happened to February, but I blinked, and it was gone! I hope you all had a great month and are ready to head into Spring and sunshine. As usual, there is lots going on at the shop and I hope we will see all of you soon, especially now that the weather is headed in a better direction (fingers crossed anyway).
I'll be heading to our Spring Needlepoint Market this month (3/19-3/21) so keep your eyes out for lots of new designs to come into the shop. If there is anything you would like me to pick-up, please shoot me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
